I realized this morning when I opened the app for google + on my phone (which I haven’t done in MONTHS because I always forget that I have that thing) that I haven’t written anything on my blog in a few weeks either. This place is fun for me, the other place frightens and confuses me, so don’t expect posts from me over there anytime soon.
I haven’t written anything here in a while because we were preparing (and then went) to San Diego Comicon. The convention was five days of fun, although exhausting and overwhelming. We came home that Sunday afternoon and then got up early to go to the taping of The Wil Wheaton Project. We left straight from the taping and headed Santa Barbara for a couple of days of peace and quiet, to catch up on sleep, and to celebrate Wil’s birthday. We had the best time, ever. We both slept 12 hours Monday night, had breakfast delivered to our room, got massages at the hotel spa, walked 4 miles on the beach, napped, and had dinner. We did the same thing the next day (minus the massages) and felt rejuvenated.
We came home Wednesday afternoon, a couple of hours before twenty of our friends were to come over for a Sharknado 2 viewing party. It was great to see everyone and watch this ridiculously awesome movie (and see our tiny cameo in it) and we still managed to get another long night of sleep in afterward. I think we’re fully recovered from Comicon in the sleep department now.
On Thursday, my baby boy turned 25 years old. It was the first birthday that we couldn’t make a solid plan to celebrate because he’s been doing a project for a company that’s part of a 3 month interview process. I’m not going to share anything else about that because he still doesn’t know if he got the job or not, and when he does, it’s his happy news to share first. But I’m so proud of him for working so hard and focusing on something that he wants for his life, and realizing he’s officially an adult who knew he needed to choose focusing on the project over big birthday plans. We did go out to a nice dinner at least, so that was fun.
I am down to my last two photo shoots for my rescue pet calendar project. Unfortunately, both of these previously scheduled photo shoots had to cancel this past week. One for an emergency medical issue, the other because of travel scheduling conflicts. I’m not going to say who these two are because you’ll find out when they’re in next years’ calendar. But now I’m trying to fill those two spots quickly, my photographer recently fell and tore a ligament in her hand, I have a friend who is coming to visit and celebrate my birthday later this week, and we’re preparing to go to GenCon in Indianapolis next week. AAAGAARAAGHHH!!!
My calendar printer is awesome and is formatting everything for me so all I have to do is give him the last two photos and the printing can start immediately. My plan is to release this calendar project for the Pasadena Humane Society at the beginning of September but with all of these unexpected setbacks, it may be a little later than that. It is what it is and all I can do is keep moving forward the best I can.
It makes me feel really good that people have asked me to write on my blog more often. It’s fun for me but I just haven’t had the time to write anything. This post is probably going to be sitting here while I get through the next two weeks but I swear I’ll be back! And who knows, maybe some free time will pop up and I can come back here in between. In the meantime, happy August!
